Exciting Eco Adventure @ Awana Genting Long House

[Next Post: Pasar Ikan Bakar Seafood Barbeque & Blind Trail @ Awana Genting Long House]

After breakfast we MSS Bloggers took a group photo at the lobby of Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spa. Thanks Raja Hilmy, the Mass Comm manager of GPT who always accompany us during these two days. Please spot the GM of GPT in this picture =)

Saying goodbye to my comfy bed in room No. 506. Next time I wanna bring my whole family and stay in a bigger villa! Sure its fun! You can read my previous review of Canary Palm Villa.

Saying bye bye to this infinity swimming pool. I didn't manage to dip myself in this pool yet, but I will surely jump into it during my next visit~! =D

Took a photo with Pascal Prigent, the General Manager of Golden Palm Tree before we left.

Between, this is Rizma, a blogger from Indonesia that read MsXeroz and my blog since MSS2010. Thanks for your support Rizma =D

We stopped at a nearby mamak store and everyone was waiting for their mee mamak. Thanks Feeq for the group photo~ Sang birthday song to Nigel and Feeq made him drink the tasteless and bitter tea haha.

Then we all sleep like this cat on the way to Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort.
*So cute*

After a few hours bus ride, we arrived at Awana Genting Resort. The weather was cool. We were served with food and drinks before we went for a 'secret-and-challenging-activity'.

Alison Wee (Horizon Communications), YB Elizabeth Wong (EXCO for Tourism, Consumer Affairs and environment), Dato Anthony Yeo (SVP of PR Communications Genting Malaysia Berhad) and Syahrul Zuhara (PR Manager of Resort Genting)

Dato Anthony Yeo shared with us saying that we should jog in the morning instead of at night because the plants and trees will emit more oxygen for us in the day time. Photosynthesis also Dato know. Cool huh? =)

Here's a group photo of us at Awana Genting Highlands Golf and Country Resort. I like the creative itinerary video that was shown. Quite excited but scared at the same time after knowing there was another challenge on the next day.

This is our Awana Genting cowboy instructor that briefed us about our next challenging activity.

We will be following Zul's commands and instructions to complete our mission in these 2 days.

Another group photo before we left to Awana Genting Long House and the secret place.

"Eco sports are activities created to acquaint guests with nature around Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort. It's developed to allow guests to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Various activities are planned within the resort vicinity and there is always a guide with complete safety and security gadgets to show you the ropes."

You can play Nature Trek , Indoor Abseiling, Indoor Rock Climbing, Outdoor Abseiling, Outdoor Flying Fox at the surrounding of Awana Genting Eco Park. The rates for Eco Sports Activities ranging from RM15/child to RM30/adult. More information at Awana Genting Website.

Awana Genting also provide Team Building activities at here too. Called the SHRDC - Awana Domino Race Knowledge Team Building Programme - Learning on the Run, this special training will be conducted at Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort, a highlands sanctuary located at 3,000 feet above sea level. The Resort's mix of cool, refreshing environments, challenging natural landscapes and wide range of team-building and eco-sports facilities make it a highly-conducive venue for corporate training programmes.

We went for Jungle Treking the next morning too

This was what we did - Abseiling

We need to do abseiling by 'walking' down the hill.

Or face your phobia by doing abseiling facing towards the ground. It was scary but fun!! =D
I still remember Daniel hopped like a rabbit while abseiling.

Olivya, TC and Suzan going for second round!!

Trying to play with bokeh effect using the zoom lens
Daniel, Dwi Andi and Shaleh

Ended up created a group jump shoot for fun! =D Thanks to the jump crews Shaleh, Olivya, Fairuz, Dwi Andi, Andi Kusmianto and Ester. Wonder why Hijrah was picking his head haha.

Another group shot from Feeq's camera~ Please count how many DSLR Fairuz was holding. The Pink Pentax DSLR grabbed your attention first right? ;p

This is the Awana Genting Long House that we spent overnight. The weather was cold enough that you only need to worry about the mosquito. But once you wear long sleeve and pants there won't be any bites =)

The rental for Long House and Campsite is RM1400/night for 40 persons and below. It would be RM35/perfon for 41 persons and above. For more information about the available activities please visit http://www.awana.com.my. It is definitely a good place for team building and get close to nature~

Presenting you Andi Kusmianto! 'Modeling' at Awana Genting Long House after Golden Palm Tree. This is actually a candid shoot while he was snapping photos around =)

Glad that I manage to capture a nice photo of Alison & Richard at the long house =) I should use my external flash for better effect haha. You can see more couples photos at my Golden Palm Tree post.

Most of us (excluding me) took a quick bathe with the freezing water before we have our awesome seafood meal @ Pasar Ikan Bakar. It is just beside Awana Genting Long House.Wonder how good is it having dinner at there? Stay tune for my next MSS2011 post!!
